MCAS - The Market Conduct Annual Statement

MCAS provides market regulators with market conduct information not otherwise available for their market analysis initiatives. Companies report their data to each jurisdiction through the NAIC's on-line MCAS application. For the 2019 data year, MCAS data is collected for the following lines of business:

  • Disability Income
  • Health
  • Homeowners
  • Individual Annuity
  • Individual Life
  • Lender-Placed Auto & Homeowners
  • Long-Term Care
  • Private Passenger Auto

The Market Analysis Procedures (D) Working Group (MAPWG) is responsible for identifying new MCAS lines of business and promoting uniform analysis by applying consistent measurements and comparisons of MCAS data provided by companies. To follow the Market Analysis Procedures (D) Working Group and their discussions related to new MCAS lines of business, visit their webpage: /cmte_d_mapwg.htm.

The Market Conduct Annual Statement Blanks (D) Working Group (MCAS Blanks WG) is responsible for the MCAS content and defining the data that is collected.

Important note — Health, LPI and LTC

The MCAS application displays an indicator for each state in which, according to your 2019 financial annual statement (FAS), you reported premium meeting the threshold requirements. The FAS Supplemental Health Care Exhibit and LTC Reporting Forms 1 through 5 filing deadline is April 1. Therefore, the required to file (RTF) indicators will not be populated until your company has submitted the corresponding forms.

Additionally, hybrid-LTC premium is only reported on a national basis and is not available to indicate RTF on a state basis. If your company only has hybrid-LTC business in a state, you will not see a RTF indicator. You still MUST file an MCAS regarding your hybrid-LTC business regardless of whether you have a RTF indicator on your filing matrix. Please note that the RTF indicator is only a guide. If you know you have relevant business to report, it must be reported whether or not you see a RTF indicator.
